Summary, etc.:
In 1928, a group of reporters watched as a young blind man named Morris Frank attempted to cross the busiest street in New York City with only the help of a dog. Cars and trucks zoomed by, horns blaring. Would the guide dog—a German shepherd named Buddy—be able to stay calm and lead Morris to safety? To the surprise of the onlookers, Buddy helped Morris make it across the dangerous road with ease. After their famous walk, Morris traveled with Buddy around the world, working hard to gain rights for all people with disabilities. In this inspiring book, young readers will learn about Buddy, as well as modern-day guide dogs. Students will be amazed at the teamwork between people living with disabilities and their dogs. With dramatic photos, this book is sure to warm the hearts of animal lovers everywhere.
